Erisandage in Italy.
Brigandage, in the southern part
of the Kingdom of Italy, at least,
appears to be as audacious and de
fiant as ever. A Sicilian gentleman
was taken, not lon sjneepin. broad
daylight, from hi.ljoustv.and had
he not been Incky'Tnongh to escape,
wouul nave i
K dougt,. ;to pay
roundly lor' u:s ransom.- isaron
Porcari, a wealthy Neapolitan,
was letij fortunate. He, too, was
seized by a party .pf brigands, in
his own houe, and curried off into
the mountains, vrero he was re
quired to pfodace.'jjhe- enormous
ransom cf 125,O00s;U'dccs. Even
to the marauders J this demand
seemed extortionate, 'for they after
wards reduced it to orte-half that
amount. While awaiting its .receipt
from his Irother, IV44. confined
n days m a

on the iaco ot an inacc
of bio 0 1 i ti. Through the mouth
his prison the luckless Baroh could
see the railway station, not ten
miles di-taiii, and trains whizzing
by almost under his very nose. The
contemplation must ' have added
some exasperation to the bitterness
of his position. A somewhat simi
lar incident .will be recalled to the
reader of one of Samuel Ferguson's
stories of Irish outlawry.
On the twelfth day the Baron
manap-ed to make his escape.
no sooner was, ho; Ljk safety, than he
sent an nrg'e'tft tWfnphi; dispatch
to Lia brotiprijsqusting Juju, to pays
tho stipulated random, as -though he
were still it: the power of the
brigands. . A' OcvenCifchT this
precaution, he has not ventured to
return to his estate. ' Nothing
could more forcibly indicate the
prevailing dread of these outlaws,
or the li:tle reliance that is placed
up. :n the 'etectioTi' $f tbe law.

A Joker Flooded.
Snaiiler, the smewhat noted danc
ing master of old 'Concert Hall'
days, was a wag and a joker; and
he was not always particular where
or how his jokes hit. There was
one joke in particular which he had
frequently played off upon country
men at Brigham's hotel, to the in
tense edification of beholders.
One evening, upon the arrival of
the stage from the eastward, a medium-sized,
countryfied looking fel
low entered the office of the hotel,
with a well-worn carpet-shag in his
hand. He was clad in homespun,
and his flaxen hair was uncombed.
Depositing his bag upon a chair he
asked if h.e could have supper and
Snafllcr was there, with his crowd
of admirers, and he thought here
was an opportunity for the old joke.
He winked to the bar keeper, and
then advanced consequentially, with
all the dignity of a delicto land
lord. ' My dear sir,' he said, to the
stranger, very politely, 'you can be
accommodated. What would you
be pleased t order for supper ?'
' Fried sassages ; and plenty of
'cm. I'm hungry,' was the cusio
mer's hearty response.
. ' Very well,' pursued the joker,
at. the same time producing a tail
or's measuring-tape; ' I'll take your
measure, if you please.'
' Mv mo sure? For what ?'
' So we may know just how many
sausages to cook for you. We al
wavs do it. Please to stand around
The lookers on tittered, and the
customer saw it.
Now this customer was the wrong
customer altogether, lie was none
other than Lem Delano, the best
horse trainer and driver north of
had come up from
help Ili. Woodruff at
' Look" here,' said Lem, with a
smile which none of., his horses
would have wished to see, 'if you're
nroin' to measure me for supper
doif t you want to take my measure
for a bed at the same time :
' Certainlv. Well thought of,
Wal have yon been measured
for your bed :
4 Ah ye3.'
' Then to make sure, I'll measure
ye over again.'
And with a quick, strong move
ment, Lem grasped the joker by tbe
collar and the seat of the pants,
and dumped him at fu
on the sanded iloor.
The laugh was turned now upon
the jocker, and it was loud and up
roarious. Snaiiler got up mad. lie gave
the countryman a critical look, and
concluded that he had better ;ry
quits, and pay for the flip ail around,
which he did. lie never proposed
to meaMire another man for his sup

l.L'l'FALO, N. Y., Junel. About
ll:o0 o clock this morning a pain
ter named William McCullough,
who was at work on the Second
Sister Island bridge, above Niagra
Falls, by some mischance fell into
the raging current beneath. The
water at this point rushes and eur
ges along to the c. tunict, throe-,
quarters of a mile below, with irre
sistible force. All along the stream,
down the brink of the American
fail, the bed of the river is thickly
studded with huge boulders, around
and over which tiie current .seethes
and boils as if iu fury at the ob
structions. It was down th's fright
ful channel that the unfortunate
man was swept with the velocity of
a whiriw.ml. His doom appeared
to he sealed, for nothing short of a
miracle could rescue him from the
clutches of the angry waters, and
the fearful plunge over the falls be
It seemed as though he must have
drowned long before reaching the
cataract, but he did not. Neither
did he go over the falls. In a short
time after falling from the bridge,
he was seen standing erect upon a
rock that lifts itself above the wa
ter in the rapids. Here he appear
ed to be as far from human aid as
before, for it was almost certain
death to go to his rescue ; but a
hero was found equal to the emer
gency, and amid thu wildest excite
ment among the throng who now
lined the shore preparations for his
rescue were made.
A rope was securely fastened to
the bank some distance above, and
Thomas Conroy, who had volun
teered for the hazardous - undertak
ing, succeeded in reaching the place
where McCullouirh was standing.
By means of the rope both men
were safely hauled ashore.
Strange as it may be, McCullough
was not injured in the least, and
will probably be abouc to-morrow
none the worse for his perilous bath.
A Happy Deliverance.
The Catacombs in Paris are verv
extensive, and in them, as is known,
are deposited the bones which were
collected from the different burial-
places of Aaris, on the suppression,
iu the time ot the revolution, ot
cemeteries within the walls ; and
these ghastly objects are piled up
in such a way as to form galleries
or streets which extend for miles.
It is recorded that, at different times,
numerous persons have lost their
way in these dreadful regions, and
have died in hunger and terror. A
strange incident connected with
these subterranean avenues occur
red lately. A journeyman printer,
about two o'clock in the morning,
on his way home, near the Luxem
bourg, heard cries of distress from
under the earth. At first he fan
cied he was laboring under an illu
sion, but, on listening, he distinctly
heard human voices from bciow an
iron slab which covers the orifice
openinir into the Catacombs. He
summoned some police officers, and
they, hearing the same cries, caused
the slab to be removed. In answer
to inquiries, the officers ascertained
that it was M. Katinjr on? of the
keepers of the Catacombs, and
three companions whom he had
taken with him on the afternoon
of the previous day to assist in
changing a lock on the door of one
of the galleries. On entering, they
had only on candle with them,
which was lighted, and no matches.
The lio;ht had been blown out al
most immediately en entering the
Catacombs, and being thus left
without any clue to direct them,
they had spent hour after hour in
going up one gallery and down an
other in total darkness, their hope
of rescue fast settling down into
despair, when they were thus un
expectedly heard, and providen
Two ladies who last summer took
a tour through Spain, visited the
gypsy caves, and, in spite of their
guide's remonstrance, ventured into
one.- The furniture consisted chief
ly of door mats, on each of w hich a
child lav asleep. One of the great
difficulties in civilizing a gypsy is
chat he cannot be cured of stealing
door mats. 1 f they gain admittance
to any house, either as beggars, or,
as is frequently the case, as models
for thejartisis, they are sure t carry
off the door mat. We were showu
one splendid gypsy, up at the Al
hambra, who had been a very popu
lar model among the artists, but the
consumption of door mats was so
tremendous that they were obliged
to give him up."

Hints on House Cleaning.
Paint should be cleaned by using
only a little water at a time and
changing often ; a soft flannel cloth
or sponge is better than cotton or a
brush ' a riiecft of pino vvitn a
sharp point should be used for the
corners. Where the paint is stain
ed with smoke, some ashes or
potash-lye may be used. A soft
linen towel should be used for wip
ing dry. Glass should not be clean
ed with soap; a little paste of whit
ing and water should be rubbed
over, and with another cloth it
should be rinsed off, and the glass
polished with a soft linen or old
silk handkerchief. Alcohol or ben
zinc is a good thing to clean glass,
and clean paper is probably better
than any cloth, sponge or towel ;
dry paper leaves an excellent polish.
Marble may be cleaned with a mix
ture of two parts of common soda,
one part of pumice-stone, and one
of chalk, finely powdered and tied
up in a fine muslin rag ; the marble
is wetted with water, the powder
shaken over it, and it is rubbed
with a soft cloth until clean, then
washed in clean water and dried
with a soft linen or silk handker
chief. No soap or potash should
be allowed on marble. A good fur
niture polish is made by melting
two ounces of beeswrax, one ounce
of turpentine, and once of powered
rosin together, with a gentle heat,
and rubbing on when cold, with a
soft flannel cloth, and polishing
with a soft linen or silk cloth. lf
for mahogany, a little Indian red
may be mixed in. Cracks m fur
niture may be filled with putty,
mixed with Indian red or brown
amber, to get the desired shade.--When
dry, it will take an equal
polish with the wood. Christian
